  1. Dear G C Jayakumar, as per RBI’s gudelines, no Bank can ask for penalties on loan switch over or closure.



  2. G.C.Jayakumar says:

    But most of the banks like SBI one of the leading sponsors of home loan have themself abolished takeover charges as per the guidelines of NHB.

  3. G.C.Jayakumar says:

    But circulars of NHB says that they should not levy any kind of such charges on takeover.Please refer DBOD.No.Dir.BC.107/13.03.00/ and NHB(ND)/DRS/Pol-No.51/2012-13 Dated Aug 7,2012 circulars and report your opinions.

  4. Ashwini Rao says:

    Generally, banks levy some penalty charges (say 1%-2%) when a loan is re-financed from other banks. Whether you need to pay 1% penalty would be written in Terms & conditions while you have applied for the loan. Please re-read the T&C again.
